Messier 29

I have been sitting on this data since 2017 and just recently found the time to process it. Nothing fancy, but I have always been a fan of open clusters. Messier 29 is a open cluster located in Cygnus. Longer exposures and hydrogen alpha data would have brought out more of the nebulosity in this region, but this was meant to be a quick project during a near full moon. As it stands, you can just barely spot hints of the background nebulosity, as well as a few areas with dark nebula. Gear: AstroTech AT6RC, Atik 428EX, Astronomik LRGB
